Ophidian Eye

Enchantment — Aura

Flash (You may play this spell any time you could play an instant.)

Enchant creature

Whenever enchanted creature deals damage to an opponent, you may draw a card.

yeah i think i'm missing some card draw here too. tried to incorporate some with Abundant Growth and Brainstorm but i'd much prefer some more consistent draw. i had Snake Umbra in a previous version (which went heavy on totem armor), which at least gives a little more value than Ophidian Eye for the cost, but it felt like this deck wanted a lower mana curve and by the time i get a few turns past a three cost, Ancestral Mask should be a finisher. that said, what do you think about the benefit of the extra 1/1 on Snake Umbra vs the extra creature for forced sacrifice fodder on Tandem Lookout? What about a transmute effect like Dizzy Spell to find a one or two mana? Kinda flexible single card seek for later in the game.

That's a lot lol sorry

Ophidian Eye and Helm of the Ghastlord appear to be the only Pauper-legal Curiosity enchantment effects, but they're a little high mana value.

I might recommend Tandem Lookout maybe, or Entourage of Trest if you think the game will last long enough for you to play it.

Deliberate, Opt, and Consider are some standard card draw spells you could use.

I'm still amused that the Deck Editor thinks it is 2/3rds Casual.

As someone commented it is an fun deck. But like any EDH, you fiddle with to get better game play.

Ophidian Eye - infinite loop here.

I still like an idea of balance in a game, being hard but not being OTT.

Madcookie on Niv-Mizzet needs more cards! (under construction)

Niv-Mizzet, Parun seems like a nice inclusion. For me Blistercoil Weird and Delver of Secrets  Flip feels underwhelming in edh you can swap them for some more draw or since you like cipher even Triton Shorestalker and Mist-Cloaked Herald.

Since you asked for card draw suggestions the main staples are X spells like Blue Sun's Zenith,Pull from Tomorrow, 4 CMC type Fact or Fiction / Steam Augury or Behold the Multiverse stuff and cantrips like Brainstorm, Ponder etc. There are also wheels like Windfall. Have you checked Scryfall? Their search engine is rather easy to use.

I still haven't build my Niv deck but I plan to put in the transmute package to find me the three combo pieces

Dizzy Spell for Curiosity

Drift of Phantasms for Tandem Lookout or Ophidian Eye

Hope this helps. Cheers!

Hey, you have an interesting/fun deck, but sorry it's casual power level (PL) 5 at most.

Lands in the manabase and ramp sources are a big sign of what PL. A low budget manabase that has Highland Lake and Temple of the False God isn't PL 7-8. Very little ramp with a 4.0 avg. CMC is not PL 7-8. Please get rid of Temple of the False God.

It's difficult to get to PL 8 or higher on a low budget because the best lands and mana rocks are some of the most expensive cards in Commander. At best on a low budget unless playing mono-colored you're looking at PL 6. Your deck doesn't have any instants or sorceries? Izzet has many good low budget instants and sorceries especially for draw.

You have an infinite combo Niv-Mizzet, Parun + Curiosity, that helps to have a higher PL. Although, Niv-Mizzet, Parun is better as a win condition when it's the Commander not inside the 99. You have many potential other win conditions: Purphoros, God of the Forge, Reckless Fireweaver, Impact Tremors, Nettle Drone, etc., but lack enablers to combo with these win conditions.

To increase PL your deck needs to be more tuned to get to the final goal which is to win the game. PL 8 uses just about all cards in the deck to help to assemble a combo win, ramp, tutor, draw, protect the combo or stop an opponent's combo. If a card doesn't help to do one of these then it's not needed in the deck. Don't try to get to PL 8 unless you can spend for expensive price cards instead shoot for PL 6.

Here's some low budget cards to increase the PL of your deck:

Unfortunately Curiosity and Ophidian Eye don't combo with Queza. While damage causes loss of life, it's not interchangeable with damage and so you won't draw a card from Queza's ability triggering. This combo works with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind specifically because he deals damage.

Great suggestions thank you for the comments.

I honestly forgot about Teferi's Puzzle Box and I didn't even think about Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator but that's a great combo.

I first wanted to keep out Ophidian Eye and Curiosity because I was worried they draw my deck dead with Nekusar, the Mindrazer and having them just for Niv-Mizzet, Parun seemed not really worth taking a card slot for me, since I have no way of getting him consistent on the battlefield. I also didn't realize here that Glint-Horn Buccaneer actually kills everybody in the discard step at the end of the turn with enough cards in my hand.

And Glint-Horn Buccaneer goes infinite with Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator or Curiosity/Ophidian Eye if that is something you want to do. Curiosity/Ophidian Eye also goes infinite With Niv-Mizzet, Parun.
